I regard my work as externalization of unperceivable realms. Also, they are the capture of the continual alternation of unperceivable spheres and perceptible spheres. At the moment of perceiving the unperceivable layer, a boundary between the perceptible and the imperceptible is generated. At the same time as the perceivable becomes recognized as the manifestation of the unperceivable, the boundary becomes transformed.
Most of my sculptures have boundaries formed by holes, crease, seams, or colors. They are the marks of the creation of space. They eliminate, redefine, or blur interior and exterior.
During the Glogau Artist in Residency program, I will do the project, “Inter-Spaces.” This will be my artistic practice of the formation and systematization of interspaces that connect and separate spaces. Various possibilities of the layout of passages and walls will be studied and designed for the project.
The passages function as media to link one place to another. They also divide a space into parts while creating boundaries of the divided spaces. The walls can be the structural elements for forming the passages and also can determine the shapes of the passages. This project will be an example to visualize spatialization and structuralization of interspaces.
In an aspect of production process and materials, epoxy putty, silicone sheets, strings, wire mesh, plaster bandages, and acrylic paint could be used for hand-made sculptures. The sculptures also could be made with digital production tools and be materialized with 3D printers.
The output from the project will be presented through the open studio exhibition.
